Springtime Getaway in Margaret River
Are you ready to toss aside the clouds and chill of winter? Would you love to feel the sun on your face? Then head to someplace that celebrates the beauty of spring that is like nowhere else in the world, the Margaret River Region.
While the region is renowned for its beaches, lighthouses, and wineries, the glorious display of spring wildflowers is not to be missed. The delicately painted panorama that is spring in the Margaret River Region can best be described as breathtaking. Fragile wisteria blooms climb to the sky in Jarrah, and Karri Forest and broad swaths of Sharks Tooth wattle decorate the cliffs in brilliant shades of yellow made for a celebration.
As you admire the handiwork of nature, remember that many plants blooming here cannot be found anywhere else on earth. Humans are one of the greatest threats to maintaining the delicate balance of this diverse haven. Please be gentle with the fragile ecosystem.
